The Bedford Public Library was built as a Carnegie Library, created to educate the people in the neighborhood and provide them with the means for a better life. The new Teen Center at the library does the same, but through the modern needs of today’s youth. By providing a safe, exciting, and engaging space, teens are encouraged to spend their afternoons in the library, working on homework, being with friends, or playing games in a safe and supportive environment.
Computers are a vital part of everyday life and education, and necessary to find jobs. The video game area give the teens a fun reason to hang out in the library after school.
The Teen Center has both private working areas for quiet, individual work, (upstairs) and group work (downstairs).
This lounge provides a fun and safe space for friends to hang out.
